Danny Valencia Stays Hot

The Baltimore Orioles inched a game closer in the Wildcard standings yesterday with a great collective pitching performance and a two run double from Danny Valencia as the Birds took two of three from the Blue Jays with a 3-1 victory Sunday afternoon.

Valencia came through with the big hit of the day, again, for the Orioles. Trailing 1-0 in the top of the third inning, Baltimore had runners on first and second with two outs, and Valencia scorched a ball down the left field line to score two and give the O's a lead that they would not relinquish.

Baltimore's other run came in the fourth inning when Chris Davis worked a bases loaded walk after being down 0-2 in the count.

Valencia led the way with two RBI, while Nick Markakis had the lone multi hit game going 2-4 with a run scored.
